3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz growler, served at around 45F. Kegged in November 2012 if memory serves.
Pours cloudy amber with a two finger off-white head that leaves nice rings of lacing and recedes to a light cap.
Aroma is oranges, orange marmalade, citrusy hops, melon, caramel malt, a hint belgian-y. Good strength.
Flavor is orange marmalade, melon, fruity hops, decent bit of caramel malt with some sweetness, average bitterness, light alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, oily, good carbonation.
Strikingly similar to the Ezekiel’s Wheel...almost makes me wonder if it is Ezekiel’s, but the keg is marked as Cannon Dragger. Lots of fruity hops and almost a Belgian character. Pretty good, but awfully expensive for what it is. I know they’re an upstart, but their pricing is pretty extreme.
Bottle at RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours a clear amber with small white head that lasts. The aroma is dank and citrus. Medium body, juicy hop, grapefruit pith, pine, light bitterness, very good. DocJitsu (2025) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Pours a dark amber-golden with an eggshell-tan colored head. Candied citrus on the nose. Thicker, sticky mouthfeel. Clean citrus and pine flavors. Itzjerm (3074) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2016

Pours copper gold and hazy with a small off-white head. nose is sharp floral hops with a bit of fruit sweetness leaning toward green apple.flavor is very hop forward and quick to bite before fading to a grain heavy sweet malt. Finish is long and sticky. Decent IPA. rajendra82 (1101) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2015
The reddish amber color was much darker than a typical IPA. The body was hazy, and the head was one finger thick. The aroma much milder than most IPAs (or DIPAs, which this beer was approaching in ABV). The smell was woody, earthy, and spicy, with some malt coming through as well. The taste was even milder than the aroma, as there was very little bitterness. There was a lot of earthy, chalky hop flavors, that reminded me a lot of English old ales. There was some hints of spice in the dry aftertaste. The body of the beer was its best quality, as it was soft, smooth, and soothing. The beer was had place to show a bottled on date, but the date had not been printed, but I do believe I had a fresh sample.

Bottle shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Pours clear, rich gold with a fluffy, white head. Pretty nice citrusy hops in the nose, some accents of grapefruit, a bit of papaya. Medium sweet flavor with light pine, pithy citrus, some pale grains. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish with more pith, dry pale bread, pine. Not bad.

Bomber bottled on 3/13. (hand numbered)
Slightly hazy orange under a tall, creamy, off-white head.
Citrus and pine hop aroma.
Well balanced flavor between the malt and the hops but this could pass as an APA. Decent beer with no flaws, just lacks adventure. This came off the store shelf about 10 days ago, might be tired. Brentv (682) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2015
On tap at The Brick Store Pub in De atur, GA. Orange pour with white head tbat is thick and really sticky. Aroma and taste of citrus and tropical fruits. Medium oily mouthfeel. Bitter finish. This is smooth with a gentle maltiness and lots of delicious hops. Theydon_Bois (20462) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015

Bottle share at Evernote. Big malts on the nose that turn to thick hops on the palate. Heavy stuff.
